Deschutes Base Camp Week: Hats Off to Homebrewers
By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Oct 23 2012 11:39 AM ]
The guys from Deschutes Brewery, purveyor of Mirror Pond Ale and Obsidian Stout, are in town for Base Camp Week, a craft beer celebration. There will be events all around town, from a White IPA release party at Seasons Rotisserie & Grill to a tasting at Jubilation, and appearances by, um, "a giant traveling beer barrel named Woody." But the event I'm most excited about is the Hats Off to Homebrewers workshop tonight at O'Niell's Pub on Juan Tabo. Deschutes brewer David Brendgard will be offering advice to local do-it-your-selfers on improving their beer. He'll also be giving away recipe books, bags of hops and other complimentary brewing supplies. A crew from La Cumbre Brewing will be on tap to talk shop, too. Plus, O'Niell's will offer a special menu starting at 6 p.m. and pair it with selected beers for the occasion. $20 gets you in the door—$15 if you're a member of the American Homebrewers Association. O'Niell's Pub, Northeast Heights • 5-8 pm • $15-$20 • 21+ • deschutesbrewery.com
